A Scientific Approach to Chronic Pain

Life impacts pain; pain impacts life. Learning about the science behind chronic pain can help you gain more control over both.

Curable's Approach to Healing

Modern research shows that psychological and emotional elements can play a major role in chronic pain. These non-physical components can help the brain “learn” to be in pain, re-wiring the body’s neural circuitry to perpetuate the sensation of pain.

BUT this means the brain can also "unlearn" pain, paving the way to physical pain relief.

Curable incorporates this modern research and mindbody medicine techniques into easily accessible exercises that help you:

  • Overcome fear of movement, pain, and more
  • Learn how to retrain your body's pain response
  • Tackle your unique pain stressors and break the pain cycle
  • Build confidence in yourself and your body
  • Re-engage in life's everyday activities

*Study Design: Curable distributes a Patient Global Impression of Change survey to individuals after they have been using the program for 30 days. This study is ongoing, but to date the analysis includes n = 10,173 respondents.

Chronic Pain: A Cycle of Stress and Pain

Everyday stressors have more of an impact on the body than most of us realize. Once stressors are identified, the brain begins to put the body into a state of fight or flight, causing real, physical effects in the body. Download our infographic to understand how the chronic pain cycle works, and learn how to break it.

We’re All Just A Bundle Of Neural Pathways

Alan Gordon has spent his entire career helping people to overcome pain they’ve been told is incurable, by looking at it from a different perspective: a neural pathway problem. But before he treated these pain conditions, he lived through them. Hear more about Alan’s personal struggles with pain, and how he helps his patients now.

Pain Is An Emotion

Dr. Bethany Ranes, a research scientist with a background in cognitive neuroscience, is currently working on a project that could dramatically change the future of healthcare for chronic pain patients. Her team at UnitedHealth Group Research and Development is building a new system: one that treats patients from a biological, psychological and social perspective.
